I am not sure if my sentence is correct:

I had worked at Delicious Cake shop for more than 2 years since February 2012.

I quit the job in July 2014.
The people at Delicious Cake shop were very nice to me.
But It always took me more than 2 hours to travel to the shop,
so I wanted to look for a job that is closer to my living place.

Not advising you on a cover letter, just on the grammar...

You would want to say something like this:

I worked at Delicious Cakes for more than two years, starting in February 2012.

since would not work there very well, unless you punctuated the sentence like this:

I worked at Delicious Cakes for more than two years—since February 2012.

But there, since February 2012 is disjunct, and there is an ellipsis:

... — [I worked there] since February of 2012.

In a different structure with more complicated tenses you could say:

By July of 2014 I had been working at Delicious Cakes for more than two years.

That would be like telling a story, not simply giving the raw facts of your employment:

By July of 2014 I had been working at Delicious Cakes for more than two years, and felt it was a good time to try something different.

'For' and 'Since' can be used together. Usually redundant/duplicate words are avoid during sentence construction.
In the mentioned sentence, its just the sentence structure that seems incorrect.
